Obama's Stereotyping

Obama figured that what a cop would want would be ...a beer?: Dry Bones cartoon.
In response to a previous Dry Bones cartoon about Obama and the bias he showed towards the Cambridge Police Department, a loyal reader named Louise Cohen dropped me a note saying:
"So he invites them to get together for a beer. What a stereotyper O is. Hmmm... how can I calm down an Irish guy and a black guy? Of course, offer booze... Now the woman who made the 911 call says (and the tapes verify) that she never described the suspicious guys by race and she has been maligned.

A woman who lives in Cambridge? Let's invite her over for herbal tea."

Your thoughts?
